It was a busy week across the Primary School last week as students sat their end of Spring Term assessments. Teachers are currently busy marking the assessments and we are looking forward to celebrating your child’s successes with you through the end-of-term report, to be sent home on Thursday 6 April, as well as in person during the Primary Parent-Teacher Progress Meeting on Monday 10 April. The students displayed high levels of resilience through assessment week and they should feel proud knowing that they have done their best.
Last Sunday, Priyadarshini Bhattacharya (4N), Deep Patel (5N) and Atin Singh (6N) competed in the semi-final round of the Qatar e-Nature competition. NAISAK were drawn in Group 5 along with Pearl School, Rajagiri Public School and Nobel International School. It was a confident start from the NAISAK trio who took an early lead. With marks deducted for incorrect answers, the students needed to be cautious before pressing the buzzer to share their answers. The competition ended with a ‘Tie-breaker” question between NAISAK and Pearl School. Showing real determination, team NAISAK got to the buzzer first, answering the question correctly. A huge thank you to the parents of Priyadarshini, Deep and Atin for their support with revision at home. We are very proud of their achievements and we wish them all the very best in the finals, which are due to take place next month.
Last Tuesday, a selection of students from Years 3 to 6 attended the Doha Municipality exhibition and art competition in Al Saad Plaza. Students explored the different preventative steps that should be taken to minimise the risk of food poisoning. They also discussed the importance of hygiene and having a healthy and balanced diet. As part of their visit, students were asked to create their own drawing that communicated the theme of food safety and nutrition. Doha Municipality has informed us that they will hopefully announce the winners for the drawing competition next month... Watch this space!
The week ended with all Primary students taking part in circle time activities with their class teacher. This was a great opportunity to build on Pupil Voice whilst re-enforcing school rules and the importance of always showing respect to each other and their property. We will be looking for further opportunities next term to add PSHE lessons into the timetable that will build studentss knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, whilst preparing them for continued academic growth.
